[audio]Direct speech in biblical narratives - Tim Bulkeley
There are many ways in which the story-tellers of the Bible ensure that their tellings are lively and engaging. One is through the way they report speech. There is usually more "direct speech" (where the words of a character are "quoted") then "indirect speech" (where the teller tells us the gist of what the character said). This direct speech is often skillfully crafted to give a lively and rich portrayal of the person...

[audio]E100-32: 1 Samuel 8:1 - 10:27: Plus ça change ;( - Dr Tim Bulkeley
This is the story in which we hear the interface between Judges, "Everyone did as they saw fit, for there was no king in Israel", and the story of the Hebrew kingdoms. In these few chapters there is loads of good stuff to notice (for a start try): Humour in the Bible: Part 1: Introducing Saul Humour in the Bible: Part 2: Still Introducing Saul Direct speech in biblical narratives But this time I'll restrain myself, and just mention one or two neat narrative details...

[audio]Humour in the Bible: Part 1: Introducing Saul - Tim Bulkeley
This is the first of what might need to be a long series! Just to do justice to the introduction of Saul in 1 Sam 9 I'll need at least 2 posts ;)

[audio]E100-33: 1 Samuel 16:1 -€“ 18:16: Slain in the Spirit - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Yes, like some of the Bible writers, I just can't resist a pun, especially if it really does help carry the message :) And in this case I think it does, more specifically after we have noticed quickly some of the good stuff in the famous David and Goliath story of David and Goliath. For this podcast, perhaps as homework, you might want to play with a computer Bible... and you might also want to return to the comments, and discuss the vexed question of the nature of blasphemy against the Holy Spi...

[audio]E100-34: 1 Samuel 23:7 - 24:22: Two noble opponents - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Just when you begin to wonder if any Bible story is really suitable for simple Sunday School reading, and have begun to suspect that the Bible has no message but: Humans are broken and need mending, humnans are sinful and therefore they keep spoiling God's lovely world and hurting each other. Along comes a story to remind us of another truth... Just as the story of Ruth followed the grime of Judges, so now in 1 Samuel 24 we get a story, set amid the war and political jostling of the beginnings o...

[audio]E100-31: 1 Samuel 1:1 - 3:21: On not missing the voice in the darkness - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Three great chapters, full of well crafted narrative, with a stirring song thrown in! There is too much detail to notice in the way these stories are told, you'll have to watch for the fun yourselves. In this 'cast I'll focus more on the song, and not so much on its detail as overall how it works. (For more background on this see my Why Read the Bible? Dreams and visions which is part of a longer series of reflections on Lost Treasures of the Bible: reading "from another place": reading for a ch...
